Event Description

Alex Paik: Stretto
Opening Reception Friday September 7, 7-9pm
On view through September 19th

In classical music a stretto is when the subject of a fugue is repeated in close, overlapping succession, usually at the end of the piece. Similarly, Paik’s fugue-like modular wall installations focus on one shape or unit as its subject which is then repeated in different orientations as the piece is hung. The way that the units layer and form other compound shapes mimic the way a fugue’s subject is transposed, inverted, and folded into itself. His work explores ephemerality, reflected color, and repetition as a generative compositional process.

The title is also a nod to the many overlapping roles that Paik has as an artist, director of Tiger Strikes Asteroid, curator of Satellite Art Show, and chief curator at Trestle Gallery.

Alex Paik is a Brooklyn-based artist whose work has been shown at galleries and art fairs nationally and internationally. He is the founder and Director of Tiger Strikes Asteroid, a non-profit network of artist-run spaces; Curator of Satellite Art Show, an alternative art fair in Miami; and Chief Curator at Trestle Gallery, a non-profit arts organization in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
